Description for Degrees

The department started M. Sc. Applied Chemistry program in 1995 and M. Phil. Chemistry in 2001. The other academic program includes, Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) in Chemistry. The department is also offering Applied Chemistry courses to engineering disciplines e.g. Chemical, Polymer, Metallurgical, Mining, Geological and Petroleum & Gas. Compulsory factory training is a part of curriculum. The main objective of the training is collaboration between chemistry and industry.
Promotion of higher education and postgraduate research had been the main objective of the department, with this consideration the department is offering research projects to more than 100 postgraduate students each year. The department has also more than twenty five HEC, M. Phil leading to Ph.D. students.

Advancements in science and technology, development of new fields and discoveries in the field of chemistry have been kept abreast by regularly updating the curriculum. The curricula and syllabi are relevant to the HEC criteria and international standards. Besides core courses; a number of specialization courses like Organic Geochemistry, Biomarker Chemistry, Color Chemistry and Technology, Petroleum Chemistry, Electrochemistry, Coordination Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Polymer Chemistry and Advanced courses in Analytical Chemistry are being offered by the department at postgraduate level. The department has well equipment laboratories with analytical facilities like GC-MS, GC-FID, GC-FPD, HPLC, MS, FTIR, UV-VISIBLE Spectrophotometers, range of Petroleum testing and other equipments
